Swarm Alpha: ASM instrument operating in burst mode from 15 to 23 December 2019

23 December 2019

From 15 to 23 December, the ASM (Absolute Scalar Magnetometer) instrument on board Swarm Alpha was commanded in burst mode.

This has temporarily caused the magnetic field intensity derived from the ASM stored in MAGA_LR_1B and MAGA_CA_1B products to be set to zero from 15 December, at 23:50 UTC to 23 December at 00:10 UTC.

The data gap will be recovered soon.
